Alright… I promised to post more regularly. So I’ve decided that Wednesdays are going to be my posting days. However, today, which will be yesterday by the time I get this up, did not hold any sort of inspiration– or time– for a decent blog post. So in order to prevent this from happening again, I’m going to challenge anyone reading to become a muse.
Feel free to leave a thought-provoking question, a muse-awakening prompt, or an intriguing quote. Either post it as a comment on this post or head on over to the “Ideas, Suggestions, A Bit of Help” page and sound off there. That way, whenever I’m at a loss for a post, I can pull from you, my readers. I’d like to stick with this resolution, and I’d hate to let anyone down who’s looking for more from me. I’ll accept all the help I can get, and show my appreciation as well.
Hopefully, this isn’t an omen for this next year of blogging. I’m looking forward to having a great deal to write about in my life, but it would be nice to have something as a backup. Thanks, everyone!

I enjoy your writing so much. May Sarton, at the beginning of Journal of a Solitude, wrote, ‘Begin here. It is raining.’ When I cannot think of how to begin, sometimes I look out the window and start there. I clicked on your Follow, and it looks engaged, but I am not receiving notifications when you post. Know that I am on your list, though.
I woke up to my phone notifying me of your comment. Thank you for setting the mood for my day– a smile! I really appreciate you coming back to read, and more than that, I’m glad you comment. This is exactly what I was going for when I started this blog. So thank you again!
At first, I thought you wrote, “I’m going to challenge anyone reading to become a nurse.” I was rather confused by this sudden call to medicinal practices.
I will not become a nurse though. And I bet neither will you (but they say the average person changes careers more times than they cough, so who knows?).
So, you want some inspiration? Well, prepare for a barrage of quotes in the hope one sticks! Muahaha!
“I love deadlines. I like the whooshing noise they make as they pass by.”
“Half of writing history is hiding the truth.”
Captain Malcolm Reynolds
“All human wisdom is summed up in two words – wait and hope.”
Alexandre Dumas Pere
“Look behind you, a three-headed monkey!”
“All will be well.”
Blue Lantern Corps
“The unexamined life is not worth living, man.”
Demetri Martin quoting Socrates
“What brown and sticky? A stick.”
“Every search begins with beginners luck and ends with the victor’s being severely tested.”
I’m glad my astronomy lab hadn’t started when I read your post. I was giggling rather loudly and surely would have had to explain myself. Thanks for the suggestions, and thank you for reading!
I offer you the question I posed on my blog entry this morning: “Will your writing dance to your inner tune today?”
